Baltimore in Crisis

May 28, 2015

Homicides in Baltimore have hit a record high, 38 murders; the highest monthly total since 1999. As the spike in violent crime continues, we hear from Kevin Shird, a former drug dealer turned youth advocate, and Wes Moore, the author of the bestseller "The Other Wes Moore," and an Army veteran and former White House aide, on how Baltimore communities can reach young people. Plus, Pastor Donte Hickman of Southern Baptist Church gives us an update on the status of the church's senior center, which was destroyed during the rioting in April.

The Southern Baptist Church of East Baltimore plans to rebuild the senior center that was destroyed in April's rioting.
